Any inspirational written materials for a woman about to turn 30?

I'm feeling more or less fine about leaving my 20's, but looking for stuff to read about it because it's on my mind a lot. I'm looking for novels, non-fiction books, blog posts, magazines articles, or short stories, but I'm trying to avoid "Things every woman should have by the time she turns 30" clichéd boringness. Chick lit is cool, although I'm quite picky about the style. I'm a big fan of Anna Maxted and her rambling, run-on sentency, hilarious writing style. Other novelists I like: Chimamanda Adichie, Sefi Atta, Thrity Umrigar, Min Jin Lee. I also read liberal newsy sites like The Guardian, Salon, The Nation, and The Atlantic. Anything that you would recommend to read in preparation for this milestone? Thanks!
